I’m so thankful for the streams and downloads for my new single “Get Up!” I checked out my numbers on Apple, Amazon and Spotify. This is truly amazing and I’m loving this. The song was released on Friday and it’s doing better than the others. It could be a ton of reasons. However, I’m just happy with the results thus far.
All great things come to an end. Or, just goes on a hiatus for a few months. As much I will say this was exhausting. It was also therapeutic for me. I also had a chance to be a bit petty. I had to… I would never slap anyone in the face. Well, not so many times as the John character. He definitely deserved it from everyone that whacked him. This was based on a few true scenarios that have happened a few times. A bunch of friends would be out and someone has to say something shady. Or, would throw the rock and hide their hand. Which would always end up with him getting read for filth.
Now I can get back to working on my album. With my right ear out of commission. I wasn’t able to record any vocals. We played it back and the sound of a person with a stuffy nose was coming from the speakers. I’m already under confident when it comes to my singing voice. So, I had to sit this out and wait for it to heal.
Ever since lockdown I’ve had the opportunity to work multiple jobs. Which has been much easier than working one job five-six days a week. I’ve revived my acting career, started a podcast and completed an album. I’ve also been spending time in the mortuary business. That’s been the best!
Working on a solo music project is hard. Usually, I would have a blueprint laid out for me. This time I’m creating the blueprint and the foundation. I had a very stressful moment and I snapped. I had a sit down with a friend. He’s a music producer and he has given me some great advice. I talk about it a bit below.
